CLOWNING! Workshop

    CLOWNING! Workshop with Rita Baptista Thessaloniki, 19-20 January 2019 Clowning is a state of playfulness that invites us to re-discover the child that lives in our hearts. Our clown is us without social masks and without the fear of failing and being vulnerable. The clown is genuine and naïve and exists to make people happier. This approach to clowning is not a technique but a personal journey towards finding one’s own unique way of being a clown, by daring to laugh and saying “yes” to every new challenge. It is only when we stop worrying about being ridiculous that we [...]

    COMMEDIA DELL'ARTE Workshop: "Angels and Devils" Budapest, 6-7 October 2018 Commedia dell’Arte has its roots in the tradition of medieval buffoons and acrobats. On the occasion of festivals or carnivals they enlivened the courts and public squares, thus becoming a multicolored set of different people coming from all social conditions.
